After a year-long period of treatment and recovery he started a sketchbook called The Daily Zoo on the anniversary of his diagnosis.

Most importantly it would allow him the focused opportunity to celebrate the gift of each healthy day.

Alongside the images, Ayers ties in commentary about his cancer experience, the sources of his artistic inspiration and his creative methods. Regardless of your artistic experience, this book will leave you inspired to grab the nearest pencil, pen, brush or crayon and start drawing!
